UHN Virtual Library: Library Services for Medical Students

Library Services for Medical Students

Our Libraries

As a result of the pandemic, the library spaces are closed or hosting respite centres for front-line staff.  Our databases, clinical tools like BMJ Best Practice, and even most of our journals and textbooks are available online, and your Information Specialist will be happy to help you using email, phone or video-conferencing. 

UHN Library and Information Services are available to UHN staff, clinicians, researchers, and learners. UHN Libraries has several library locations across UHN campuses. Our libraries offer:

  • A health and medicine focused collection of electronic books and journals.
  • Public access computers
  • Access to UHN WiFi
  • Group and individual study space
  • Printing and photocopying ($0.15 per page)
  • A variety of workshops
  • Helpful staff available to assist you with any questions you have about our collections, borrowing, and document delivery services

Find out about new services, resources and more by joining our mailing list or following us on Twitter @UHNlibraries

Clinical, Mobile and Point of Care Tools

Clinical or "point of care" tools and resources aim to summarize information for major clinical topics. By summarizing medical knowledge, it is easier to apply within the context of providing patient care. The contents of point of care tools vary on how quickly new research is integrated, on how research is or is not appraised for inclusion, how contents are written and how evidence is cited. 

Mobile tools are resources available for use on your phone or tablet.

UHN Libraries provides access to a number of these tools:

Welcome to UHN Libraries!

You have an Information Specialist to help you

I can help you: 

  • by doing literature searches for you - from finding a good textbook to systematic review searching, you don't have to do it yourself!
  • by providing individual or group training on database searching, EndNote, clinical information resources, etc. 
  • by connecting you with UHN library resources and services, or other libraries to which you may have access

You can contact me directly: 

Melanie Anderson
melanie.anderson@uhn.ca 

Or use the online forms to request searches or training and I'll get back to you!

If you are interested in working on a systematic review, scoping review or other knowledge synthesis, check out the services available and send me an email to set up an appointment to meet to chat about what happens next.
